[CentOS] SYSCALL problem in C7

Hi all!

I know this isn't a devel list, but thought someone here may have a clue
I could use...

I have a fairly big application that runs on Centos 7 (and 6 and 5).

Sometimes (not often, but too often) when running under the ddd debugger,
while sitting stopped at a breakpoint, it will suddenly spew an apparent
segfault in, as it says at the top of the source file, "Assembly code
template for system call stubs".

The specific place always looks like this:


the red error marker points to SYSCALL_NAME.

I have no idea why its doing this, it never does it when not running
in the debugger, as far as I can tell.

and why it would croak in the debugger while sitting (apparently) idle
at a breakpoint is beyond me.

anyone here got a clue?

thanks in advance!
